When you look at the photo and do not know what it is in there, you might imagine it’s some kind of a decorative object or even lacework – at least that was my first impression. It is actually a lot more resistant than that as it is made of steel and this way it can support the weight of the person sitting in it, whether thin or heavier. This chair is meant to be used in pair: one painted in white and one in black, this way allowing couples to choose the one specific for their sex and also luring them into having private conversations and time spent only for two.
